While Michael Keaton is still in the movie, playing Batman, and so is – if the rumour mill is correct – Ben Affleck, as his incarnation of the Caped Crusader, a new rumor suggests that the new brass at DC’s films division plans to recruit another actor long associated with the role of the Dark Knight to appear in this summer’s The Flash.
Who? One of these three, according to online scooper Grace Randolph :
#DC #DCStudios ⚡️
I hear that it’s going to be a former #Batman who cameos at the end of #TheFlash
& could potentially stick around as the new permanent #DCU Batman
Damian’s dad, Pattinson is still solo

The actor who appears in the film – most seem to believe it Christian Bale back in the role – would, according to Randolph, then star in The Brave and the Bold, a film in which Batman teams up with son Damian Wayne aka Robin.
Expect James Gunn to weigh in on this rumor pretty soonish and, if my Spidey senses are tingling for all the wrong reasons, put the kibosh on it.
